Advent by Candlelight committee is looking for table hostesses for the Advent by Candlelight program, which will be held Sunday, Dec. 2nd.  Table hostesses decorate a table and serve dessert and coffee to their guests before the program begins.  Hostesses are a very special part of the program as they help prepare the hearts of their guests for the Advent season.  Join us in hosting the ladies of our congregation and your friends and relatives for another wonderful program.  Sign-up sheets at both church entrances.
